Transition to Git


Current status associated with the transition is documented here on the Slicer wiki.

On of the task is to take that opportunity to filter the history and remove the large object (aka files) so that checking out the Slicer source tree is very fast.

To identify the large blobs, a script was created.

Output looks like this:

$ cd Slicer
$ 350
        size    pack_size sha                                      location
       55MiB        55MiB 2cadcca7dd65c008c03ca0786ed3b02ad86cc900 Modules/Meshing/Testing/Data/CA05042124RFinal.img.gz

The complete list is here.

After identifying the files to remove, there are few possible approaches that will present in a later post.
